Kirwan leaves Scottish Widows

Nick Kirwan has quit as Scottish Widows protection marketing director.

He says he is leaving to take time off and pursue other opportunities but plans to stay involved in the protection industry through his work with the Association of British Insurers.

Kirwan says: “It is time for me to spread my wings and do something else. I will remain in the protection arena. There is so much going on at the moment in the industry.”

He has been protection marketing director for three years and during his time at Widows, he helped launch the Protection for Life product suite through the bancassurance channel and also sat on several ABI committees.

He was named protection personality of the year in last year’s Protection Review awards.

Widows managing director of marketing and distribution Andy Briggs says: “Under Nick’s direction, we have made good progress in developing both the product platform and customer proposition in protection to capitalise on the opportunities that are available in this specialist and increasingly topical marketplace.”

The company says a handover is taking place and details of interim arrangements covering Kirwan’s departure will be given soon.
